The married couples, do not fall into two groups. Rather, we have two age outcomes. 2. 13). 14 shows the resulting output. The median age at marriage of husbands is 29 years, that of wives somewhat lower at 27 years. There is considerable variability in both the ages of husbands and wives, ranging as they do from late teens to early 70s. The first question we want to address about these data is whether there is any evidence of a systematic difference in the ages of husbands and wives. Overall, wives are younger at marriage in our sample.

2004 by Chapman & Hall/CRC Press LLC a) “Parametric” correlation coefficients Correlations husbands' ages at marriage husbands' ages at marriage wives' ages at marriage Pearson Correlation Sig.

The table also gives another t-test for testing the null hypothesis that the regression coefficient is zero. In this example, as is the case in most applications, we are not interested in the intercept. In contrast, the slope parameter allows us to assess whether husbands’ age at marriage is predictable from wives’ age at marriage. The very small p-value associated with the test gives clear evidence that the regression coefficient differs from zero. The size of the estimated regression coefficient suggests that for every additional year of age of the wife at marriage, the husband’s age also increases by one year (for more comments on interpreting regression coefficients see Chapter 4).
